“Couture & Décor”: How Fashion & Interior Design Will Change Lifestyles In 2014

In your mind’s eye, imagine a highway winding through the natural countryside. On this highway are two automobiles—both made in Detroit of course—driving in two separate lanes, but in the same direction. Occasionally, one car speeds ahead of the other, but eventually the other vehicle always catches up. And while neither car merges into the others lane completely, sometimes their tires casually cross the dotted line. In the end, however, both cars arrive at the same destination, together and on time.

Similarly, Fashion and Interior Design are much like those two cars on the same highway. They transport how people style themselves from point A to point B in the future. And although they are in the aforementioned  “separate lanes”, there is a very thin line between them since both find creative strength from similar inspirations. Why? Because they share the same goal: helping consumers arrive at a gorgeous destination.fashion-sketches

For example, the same couture fabrics and color themes that are seen on models on the runway during Fashion Week in Paris are also being used by high end interior designers across the world to outfit furniture, window treatments and even wall colors. From texture to fit to color, the parallels of fashion and interiors are simply amazing.

For the next few moments we will explore three different ways that Interior Décor will be influenced by couture fashion in 2014. The three trends we’re going to examine are as follows: 1.) Color Fusion 2.) Patterns & Wall Décor and 3.) Mixing Metals

Color Fusion: What will be the color trends for 2014 in interior design?

Tangerine: We saw tangerine trending in fashion in 2011, but it didn’t quite catch on as strongly with interior design as forecasters anticipated. Since it has been incubating in the public’s consciousness for some time now, expect it to return with a vengeance next year. Tangerine is a very versatile color. While it’s not a neutral, it does “play well” with others. Pair it with citrus, black, crème, chocolate or gray to give your living space the feel of a jet-setting experience.

Jewel Tones: Inspired by fashion, Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green will also continue their dominance in interior design and decoration next year. These cooler colors are stunning as velvets on large furnishings like sofas and chairs or as silks and linens for window treatments.

Patterns & Wall Décor: How will Fashion influence Interior Design regarding patterns and wall décor next year?

Plaid will continue to be a popular go-to pattern in homes. Whether it’s featured on fabrics by Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta, or other masters, rich color combinations in plaids of varying scales will dominate in many interiors in 2014. Because plaids can be both masculine and feminine in their execution expect many different interpretations of their usage.

Another big trend next year will be using wallpaper in versatile ways. For some time, wallpaper wasn’t in vogue, but that attitude has changed drastically with the arrival of amazing selections inspired by couture fashion. Look for ground-breaking choices that feature textures like bling, wood veneers and unusual artwork as found in stunning new collections from Fornasetti for Cole & Son. And don’t forget to consider your ceiling as option for coverage!

Mixing Metals: A third area Fashion will influence Interior Design in 2014 involves mixing metals.

For many years it was considered a faux pas to mix silver and gold accessories in interior decorating. But that is no longer the case. Just as fashion has broken the rules in terms of jewelry and fabric combinations, so too as Interior Design made it acceptable to mix and match different finishes.

So don’t be afraid to place a gold chandelier over a sofa with silver nail-heads. Or to hang artwork with varying frames in silver, bronze, gold, crystal and black together on one wall salon-style. Remember, that variety is the spice of life—and it’s also the mark of strong interior decorating.

Corey Damen Jenkins2-Mixing Metals

In conclusion, remember that fashion and interior design have been and forever will be in a symbiotic relationship. When you watch models strutting their stuff down the catwalk, imagine those same fashions, those patterns, those colors as inspiration for how you decorate your home. May we all watch 2014 with keen anticipation as interior design and fashion continue to take us down the high road of style!

Using Leather in Your Home

 

Homehills wingback black bonded leather king bed

Back in the day – way before you and I were born – leather was mostly used to cover books, not to decorate one’s home. As you know, however, the use of leather has come a long way. Not only do homeowners incorporate leather into their interior design, but now there are a variety of styles and colors of leather to choose from!

If you love the look and feel of leather, add some of this gorgeous material into your own home with these ideas:

Upholstery

Leather seating has become a common design choice for many homeowners … and it is not hard to see why! The leather material wears well, which means you can keep your favorite sofa around for years. Leave the sofa bare for a sleek, modern look. Or, add some style with a couple of fun accent pillows and a comfy throw blanket.

Tabletop

Although leather is most commonly used to make couches and chairs, there are other unique uses for the material as well. For example, leather can be used to cover a tabletop like your coffee table or maybe an end table. If you choose to go this route, be sure to always use coasters and dust the tabletop weekly to keep the leather in great condition.

Woven items

Almost any piece of furniture could feature a woven leather design. This pattern is great for adding more visual interest and will help make an attractive piece of furniture even more appealing. You can find a woven leather pattern on the back of a dining room chair. There are even woven baskets made out of leather that resemble the look of wicker, without the uncomfortable and rough feeling.

Framed clocks or mirrors

Most of the clocks or mirrors you see today are framed using wooden, metal or plastic materials. They don’t have to be though! Leather can also be used to frame different décor items. The leather material will help these smaller items stand out in a room full of décor and furnishings.

How to Incorporate Bright Colors into your Home

Decorating with bright colors is an easy way to liven up a space and give it some cheer. Unfortunately, it is also an easy way to ruin the look of your favorite room if you’re not careful. Have you ever walked into someone’s home and instantly thought “what were they thinking?!” More often than not, the culprit of their disastrous interior design was the misuse of colors. Maybe they tried using too many different colors. Whatever the case, it certainly did not leave you impressed.

 Incorporating bright colors into your interior design can be done, and when executed well, will transform your living space and give it personality. Here are some simple ways to get started:

Accessorize with bright colors

The easiest way to add some life to a room is to decorate with colorful accessories. Whether it’s an abstract painting, a red lamp or a colorful throw pillow, you can be sure that these smaller furnishings will make a big difference. Don’t be afraid to select different colored items. As long as the colors complement each other, they will look great in your room.  Make sure to check out, Jezebel, who handcrafts beautiful pieces of glass and metal lighting, all in the USA.

Add a surprising pop of color with bright furniture

If you want your bright colors to make more of an impact, consider a bold piece of furniture like a sofa or table. Because these items are larger, they will instantly become the center of attention in any room. In most rooms, you will want to have only one or two of these larger, brighter furnishings. Otherwise, each piece will have to fight for attention and will have less of an impact.

Go daring and install colorful wallpaper

Just because you ought to be careful with bright colors, doesn’t mean that you can’t still be daring. Install wallpaper with a colorful design on just one of the walls in a room like a mural. Wallpaper on one wall instead of all four will add style to your room without overwhelming it.

If you’re not sure whether two colors work together when decorating, ask for a second or even third opinion. You can even take pictures to get a better idea. After your interior design has been revamped with a brighter look, you’ll never want to go back to an ordinary, neutral color palette again!

Adding Elegance and Charm with a Chandelier

Overall, there is one dominating, ongoing lifestyle motto: “Better and best, not more or most.” This continues to impact lighting design and trends in crystal lighting. Crystal chandeliers are growing in popularity due to the variety of designs available, ability to blend into both traditional and contemporary environments, and their meaningful and emotional value.

Traditionally, homeowners add grandeur to their home by placing chandeliers in common areas. Homeowners enjoy the ambiance of a chandelier among their guests in entertaining areas such as, living rooms, foyers, and dining rooms. However, with the introduction of new chandelier styles and colors, homeowners feel inspired to place chandeliers in more personal spaces such as bedrooms, closets, bathrooms, or kitchens.

Chandeliers add a sense of elegance and mood to any space. Although you still see a majority of crystal chandeliers in foyers and dining rooms, the use of crystal chandeliers has expanded.  We have seen crystal chandeliers migrate into the bedroom, kitchens, even walk-in closets and bathrooms. With new styles, the possibilities are endless!

Due to technological advancements, there is diversification in lighting manufacturing capabilities. The inclusion of crystal in these designs coupled with the most surprising materials and lighting technology is a trend that will continue well into the future.

The illuminated candles and brilliant sparkle of crystal chandeliers provides multiple light points and creates a vivid, less static environment. From this, beautiful functionality warms the atmosphere of the room.

Share your Personality with a Clock!

Decorating your home is an excellent way to display your personality and add “you” into your interior design. While every color, piece of furniture and accessory you choose reflects your style to some degree, there are certain items that can capture the essence of you better than others. One of those items is a crucial piece of décor that often gets overlooked — your clock.

A clock can do more than just tell time and take up space. It can be functional and still show a part of your personality! Here are different character traits you might have, and clocks that match:

Bold and adventurous

Infinity Instruments The Midas Wall ClockDo you consider yourself an adventurous spirit? Than be daring and find a clock that is bold like yourself. You can choose a clock that features a bright, loud color like red or orange. Another cool idea is to hang up a clock that has no numbers at all! There are many clocks that only have hands and structural shapes like lines and circles to represent numbers. They may be harder to read, but they will certainly liven up your living space!

Unique and one-of-a-kind

Control Brands Copper New Haven Melting Shelf Sitter Clock

If you pride yourself on being one-of-a-kind, find a clock that looks like no other! The Melting Shelf Sitter Clock from Control Brands is a perfect example of an unusual clock. The unique “melting” design and beautiful bronze finish will attract the attention of guests and keep them staring.

No-nonsense and straightforward

27-Inch Wooden Wall Clock with Black Frame and Roman Numerals

Just because you like your décor to be simple, doesn’t mean that it can’t also be stylish! A simplistic style looks great in modern homes and a no-nonsense clock will present a sharp look. Try to find clocks that feature a minimalistic design and only one to two colors.

Silly and fun

Control Brands Multi-Colored Novelty Bath Wall ClockYou’re never too old for a little silliness! If you make fun a priority in your life, add it into your interior design as well.

Formal vs. Casual Chandeliers: What’s the Difference?

It’s hard to imagine a chandelier as being “casual.” You probably imagine most chandeliers to be large and ornate, decorated with beautiful crystals and many light bulbs. While these formal chandeliers are still popular, the trend in chandelier styles has changed drastically. Now designers create chandeliers to meet our contemporary needs, and they’re still just as stylish!

combined

When picking out a chandelier, it is important that the design of the chandelier matches the style of the room. You don’t want a formal chandelier installed in a casual area. Most of the time, just looking at a chandelier will tell you what style it is, but it’s also helpful to have an idea of what characteristics make a chandelier formal or casual.

Formal Chandeliers

Rarely do we find the large crystal chandeliers you see in old movies, but crystal chandeliers don’t have to be quite as large to be considered formal. They don’t even need to be crystal! Brass or iron chandeliers also present an elegant, formal style that instantly makes a room look more sophisticated. Sometimes it’s even the design of the chandelier that lends a classy appearance. The more graceful tiers and bulb or candle holders the chandelier has, the dressier it tends to look.

Casual Chandeliers

Casual chandeliers come in a variety of styles, shapes and materials. Generally though, casual fixtures are created with simpler lines and less-over-the-top designs than a formal chandelier would have. If you have a room that would benefit from a chandelier (and what room wouldn’t?), but needs a more laid-back design, try hanging up a wooden chandelier or one that has smaller covered lamps. Simple chandeliers can still look unique and add style to any room, but won’t look out of place in a casual and relaxed environment.

What room in your home could use a chandelier? Browse through our selection of chandeliers and find the perfect level of simplicity or complexity that looks best in your room.

Choosing Lighting for Your Room

When choosing lighting for a room, there are many things to consider.

  • What is the room’s main function?
  • Do you use the room for other purposes, too?
  • Who will be using the room?
  • What is your budget?
  • How is the room decorated?
  • Does the room have any interesting architectural elements or quirks that help define its function or style or that you’d like to highlight?
  • How big is the room?
  • How big are the furnishings in the room?
  • Is the room divided into separate seating or task areas?
  • How high are the ceilings in the room?

The answers to these questions will dictate your choice in lighting.

For most rooms, you’ll need more than a single chandelier or fixture to provide adequate lighting and ambiance. Depending on the function of the room, you may use a combination of overhead lighting fixtures, lamps, sconces, track lighting and recessed lighting. And don’t forget about candlelight!

Kitchens definitely need a combination of lighting for general illumination and task lighting. Your kitchen may require recessed lighting, plus a gorgeous chandelier in the center of the room. You may have additional lighting underneath your cabinets to illuminate your counter tops when you’re cooking. You also want your sink and stove areas illuminated as well.

Kitchen

A trio of pendants (or chandeliers) works great over an island or peninsula.  You might have another chandelier over your table. And some people even incorporate small table lamps into their kitchen for mood and decoration.

Bathrooms also require many layers of light – overhead, above the vanity, in the bath and shower area and in the water closet. In a powder room, you may be able to use just a single fixture in the center of the room or mounted above the mirror. But in a master bathroom and other bathrooms where people will be dressing and getting ready for their day, you’ll need more lighting. In a master suite, you may have a combination of recessed lighting, chandeliers, ceiling-mount fixtures, sconces and wall-mount bathroom lights.

Bathroom shot

Here’s a good rule of thumb when lighting a vanity area. Aim to fully surround the face with flattering light by installing a fixture that is at least 24 inches wide above the vanity mirror (for a single vanity). Combine that with a pair of sconces mounted on either side of the mirror, at least 28 inches apart and 5 feet above the floor.

If you have a double vanity, opt for a bathroom light fixture that is almost as wide as the mirror or vanity. It should be centered above the mirror, about 6 ½ feet from the floor.

For safety, when installing lighting in bathing areas, make sure that someone standing in the tub or shower cannot reach it.

Bedrooms are great places to let your lighting personality shine. Ceiling mount and semi-flush mount fixtures are the typical choices for bedrooms, but we really love the look of a chandelier above a bed.

Chandeliers in children’s rooms can make your daughter feel like a princess. (Just be sure to mount those hanging fixtures in kid’s room high enough so they don’t bump their heads when they jump on the bed. Because kids will jump on the bed, even if their parents tell them not to do so.)

Bedroom

The bedroom is another space where layers of light are important. In addition to overhead lighting, you’ll probably want to add in lamps in seating areas. Most people have lamps beside their bed for nighttime reading, but we also love to see small chandeliers hung over nightstands. It’s such a glamorous look, and it’s functional too because it frees up table space – more rooms for books and decorating!

When hanging chandeliers over nightstands, a good rule of thumb is to make sure they’re no larger than half the width of the table.

Sconces are another great choice in a bedroom, especially when used to highlight artwork, mirrors or architectural features. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, consider flanking it with a pair of sconces.

Dining rooms and chandeliers go hand in hand. Chandeliers add drama, ambiance, and set the stage for elegance throughout the entire home.

In most spaces, you’ll want to use the dimensions of the room to determine what size chandelier you need. (See “Lighting Basics by Crystorama” for more information on this.) You can use that same formula in the dining room, too, but if you already have a table, we recommend you choose your chandelier size based on the size of your table. The diameter should be about half the width of your table.

While a central chandelier is the common choice for a dining room, we also love the look of hanging several chandeliers or pendants over a long table, just as you might light an island or peninsula in a kitchen.

When hanging lights above your dining table, keep in mind that the bottom of the chandelier should be no lower than 30 inches above the tabletop.

web images Dining

Sconces are another great choice for the dining room to highlight artwork or mirrors or flanking fireplaces or windows. And don’t forget about lamps. A great pair of buffet lamps on a server provides both beauty and function.

Many people use their dining rooms for more than just dining. They can double as home offices, craft rooms and homework stations, so bring in task lighting as appropriate.

Because dining rooms are multi-functional spaces that are used day and night, you may want to consider installing a dimmer. Today, dining rooms are used for so much more than dining. It’s nice to be able to turn the lights up when working on a project at the dining room table. For a dinner party, light some candles and turn down the lights to create an intimate feel.

Living spaces, like living rooms, dens, playrooms, momcaves, mancaves, basements, home offices, and home theater rooms can be the busiest rooms in the house. When it comes to lighting, pretty much anything goes and works in these spaces.

Composite

Here, you really need to evaluate how a room will be used and choose the lighting accordingly. Be sure to follow the formula (“Lighting Basics by Crystorama”) to make sure you have the appropriate illumination for the space. Then, spend some time thinking about how the space is used by the different members of  your family. Employ layers of light, including chandeliers and hanging fixtures, lamps, recessed lighting and sconces, for general and task illumination.

The foyer is the first impression most guests will have of your home, and you want to make a good one. The furnishings and fixtures in the foyer should set the tone for your entire décor. They should be welcoming, beautiful and eye-catching.

A statement chandelier or light is a perfect choice for a foyer. In fact, you will traditionally see a chandelier in the foyer of most homes. Even though chandeliers in foyers are traditional, the chandelier you chose does not have to be traditional in style. There are many transitional and modern options available, and you should choose a statement light that fits your home and decorating style. Make it striking!

When choosing a hanging fixture for your foyer, use the dimensions of the room to calculate the appropriate size of the chandelier. (“Lighting Basics by Crystorama”) When hanging your chandelier make sure it is at least 7 feet above the floor. Therefore, the ceiling height may dictate what kind of light you choose for this space: chandelier, ceiling mount or semi-flush mount. A foyer with a vaulted ceiling or that is open to the second floor may require a multi-tiered chandelier.

Foyer

Many homes have a window in the foyer above the front door. If you do, hang your chandelier so it is centered in the window and can be seen from the outside. This adds to the welcoming atmosphere you create for your houseguests. However, bear in mind that it must still be proportioned correctly inside your home.

Depending on the size of your foyer, you may want to include sconces in the space, mounted at least 5 feet from the floor and 6 to 8 feet apart.

5 Places you can now Install a Chandelier

If you love chandeliers, but feel you don’t have the “proper” place to install one, then we have good news for you. Thanks to recent design trends and the fact that many of today’s homes are less formal than before, chandeliers can be used in any room of the house. That’s right – no longer are chandeliers reserved just for the dining room or the foyer. Now there are casual, elegant, and modern designs to fit in with any style of room. Here are just 5 unique places you can now install a chandelier:

Elk Lighting chandelier

1. Over the bed: Want to give your master bedroom a more romantic and elegant feel? Well, one of the simplest ways to transform the look of the bedroom is to install a chandelier right above the bed. Depending on your bedroom’s design, there are many styles of chandeliers that could work including crystal chandeliers or fixtures with soft-glow bulbs.

Trans Globe Lighting

2. Outdoors: Out of all the places you might have considered installing a chandelier, you probably never thought of outside! With a chandelier hung up on your patio, you can enjoy a nice meal and a glass of wine with family or friends. If you have a front porch with a couch or chairs, create a relaxing atmosphere by installing a casual chandelier. If you have to use a chandelier that operates on candles, use flameless candles for better safety.

3. Walk-in closet: A walk-in closet has a way of making a room feel luxurious and now you can make it appear even more lavish by hanging up an elegant chandelier. While you might choose to install an elegant and classy chandelier, make sure it isn’t too big so that it gets in the way. A walk-in closet may be bigger than your average sized closet, but it still isn’t as large as most rooms.

Bathroom_Chandelier_Trilliane

4. In the bathroom: Create a relaxed atmosphere in the bathroom by installing a chandelier above the bathtub. The soft glow of the chandelier will make long, hot baths even more enjoyable and you’ll come out feeling refreshed.

5. Over the kitchen island: Just because the kitchen is a highly functional room, doesn’t mean you can’t make it stylish! Try installing several mini chandeliers over the kitchen island or just one large chandelier to give the kitchen a more unique look. Friends and family will be more drawn to the island countertop and it will become the heart of the kitchen.

Choosing Wisely: How to Select the Right Chandelier for Your Home

A chandelier, suspended over the dining table, not only serves as an ornate decorative element that creates an elegant atmosphere, it can also be the focal point of the room.  A dimmable chandelier can create different moods, from a soft glowing atmosphere to one that is bright and conducive to a variety of tasks.  Choosing the right chandelier for a room can be tricky, as a variety of considerations come into play.  Aside from choosing the most visually appealing chandelier design for the space, the size of the room, the size of the table, the mounting height, and the wattage are all important to consider.

  • Size of the Room: Fitting the chandelier to the proportions of the room will help significantly in enhancing the visual appeal of the space.  Simply add the length and width of the room in feet to get the diameter of the chandelier in inches.  For example, a 12-by-20 foot room would ideally need an approximately 32-inch chandelier like the Aberdeen by Hudson Valley Lighting, which features lofty stems and rich, pleated fabric shades for a contemporary appeal.

Grandview_v1

  • Size of the Table: Of key importance when it comes to choosing a chandelier is the size of your dining table.  A good rule of thumb to follow is to measure the table’s smallest width and then choose a chandelier that is 12-inches less in diameter than that width.  Access Lighting offers plenty of versatility when matching to different table designs and features laser cut metal and frosted glass for a contemporary/modern look.

  • Mounting Height: When it comes to the mounting height, the key thing to remember is that the bottom of the chandelier should not interfere with the movement or sight line of the people sitting at the table.  In most cases, the measurement should be 36-inches from the top of the table.  It’s simple to adjust the mounting height with a fixture like the Inertia by Corbett Lighting, which impresses with crystal and polished stainless prisms, and a silver leaf finish.

Inertia

  •  Wattage:  When it comes to wattage, the total wattage of all the chandelier bulbs should be 200-400 watts to provide sufficient light.  However, keep in mind that shading affects the maximum wattage of a chandelier.  Ideally, a dimmer switch should be used to control the wattage and create the desired mood and atmosphere.

Follow the simple guidelines above to achieve exceptional results when choosing a chandelier for your home.

The benefits of hanging a chandelier

Many homeowners, maybe including you, tend to think of chandeliers as being “too fancy” or over-the-top; light fixtures that wouldn’t fit in with their home’s style or design. Because of this notion, you probably have never even considered hanging up a chandelier in your home. If that’s the case, then it’s time to learn a little bit more about the benefits of hanging a chandelier and why you should consider one for your home. A chandelier:

Saves space

Decorating a room to look more appealing can be tricky if you’re working with limited space. If you hang up a chandelier, however, you can add style and visual appeal without making a room more cramped! Even really tiny spaces like walk-in closets can use a chandelier and you’ll still have all of the space you need for clothes and shoes.

Adds more impact

Whether the chandelier is modern, formal or casual, it is able to capture attention in a way that many other light fixtures can’t. Being the center of attention is no small feat, but chandeliers easily create a focal point in any room. Whether it is their unique design or soft, elegant glow, chandeliers bring a room to life and illuminate the rest of the room to look more appealing.

Spellbound

Can fit in with different styles and designs

Chandeliers have come a long way in design and function. While chandeliers in the past were just for formal areas like the dining room or grand foyer, they have now expanded into new territory. With so many different styles of chandeliers, you can hang one in any room of your home! All you have to do is match the style of chandelier with the style of your room.

Whether a room requires the traditional formal chandelier, a unique modern style or a casual fixture design, you can be sure to find the perfect chandelier to enhance and transform your space. If you’re stuck with the notion that chandeliers can only be fancy, it’s time to form a new opinion. Take advantage of the benefits newer chandeliers have to offer and install one – or more – in your home!
